All kidding aside, it didn't take much longer for the AC45 to show its ugly side. A few hours later, while maneuvering during a pre-start in the middle of the Bay, Coutts sent his AC45 "down the mine" resulting in one of the the most spectacular pitchpoles ever caught on tape. Oracle Racing crewmember Shannon Falcone was injured in the capsize. Fortunately he was able to walk off the rescue boat and, according to team officials, had no significant injuries. But it was a very real reminder of the danger of these 45s, and the exponential danger of a capsize in the 72s, where falling from the windward hull will be like jumping from a 10 meter diving board, or higher. And that's if you don't hit the wing or another part of the hull on the way down.
